K5 through 12th Grade Christian Education
Hampden DuBose Academy’s vision is to see our students living for Christ. Through education and discipleship, students are taught about the powerful impact a life for Christ has on their generation and the lives of others around the world. Our curriculum emphasizes a Biblical worldview while providing a learning environment that encourages love, community, and obedience to God’s voice.
HDA offers excellent private education for K5 – 12th grade.
Because our focus is on the whole child - heart, mind, soul and body - we realize that our curriculum needs to be integrated in all Four Streams. We encourage activity beyond traditional academics to spur on activity inside the brain. Our faculty consistently discovers new ways of unlocking the learning potential of each student which naturally leads to teachers working collaboratively.
For example, writing lyrics in music class, may also be part of a poetry assignment for a high school English class. A geometry student may use his/her newly acquired skills to design a unique structure as part of an art or architecture class project. Our athletic department works with the high school science department when it comes to the science of nutrition as well as anatomy and physiology.
By creating a cross curricular environment and by teachers intentionally working together to develop meaningful curriculum, student learning flourishes. Our goal is that students love to learn!
Special care and attention is given to each student. Our staff provides individual attention to ensure a healthy learning environment, while also recognizing the student’s unique learning style and needs.
Accessible Staff & Teachers
HDA teachers are accessible to our students & parents. Due to the unique nature of the campus community and small class sizes, teachers are able to make themselves available throughout the day for one-on-one help, conversation, and discipleship. Teacher’s assistants and tutors provide additional help to students during class time as well as after school.
